    Default Just a few thoughts..

    * Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
    * Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
    * Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
    * Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
    * If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
    * If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it
    * It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
    * Never buy a car you can't push.
    * Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.
    * Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
    * Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.
    * The second mouse gets the cheese.
    * When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
    * Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
    * You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
    * Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
    * We could learn a lot from crayons...
    Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.
    *A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour. (or finds a great cache there!)

    I'm just glad us crayons don't have to share the same box with the pencils!

    Sheesh! Are you kidding? When my kids were "crayon aged", the crayons were NEVER in the box! They were EVERYWHERE!

    At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated,

    "If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon."

    In response to Bill's comments, General Motors issued a press release stating:

    If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:

    1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash........
    Twice a day.

    2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new car.

    3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue. For some reason you would simply accept this.

    4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.

    5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would run on only five percent of the roads.

    6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be replaced by a single "This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation" warning light.

    7. The airbag system would ask "Are you sure?" before deploying.

    8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

    9. Every time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.

    10. You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn the engine off.
